'Movement + Location' and Seed & Spark

Reader Serena Hedison recently wrote in:

I started reading The Hairpin the first day it went live (I'm also an Awl reader) and immediately connected with the points of view of its writers and, specifically, its commenters. So when you organized a meetup last Halloween, I, against my normal solitary tendencies, decided to go, feeling that if I connected so strongly with the people whose comments I was reading, I might well actually enjoy them in real life.

And I did! I met a number of interesting, funny women, and ate all of Jolie's Halloween candy. I also struck up a conversation with a woman named Bodine Boling, with whom I discussed writing and filmmaking, and we discovered we had a mutual desire to one day make a movie.

Go on...

In this conversation, she told me that she'd written a script, and I told her to send it to me, because I'm a producer and have a good eye/ear for the sense of things sometimes.

Well now, a year later, after 17 drafts of major changes and slight adjustments, she and her husband and I are in pre-production for "Movement + Location," the movie she wrote. We've partnered up with the newly launched Seed & Spark, which is like a cross between Kickstarter and a wedding registry for filmmakers, and we hope to raise much of our tiny — but to us, considerable — budget of $50,000 this way.

At any rate, as I was recounting the origins of this project, I thought of The Hairpin and the community I found there, and wondered if we might post this there, along with a link to our fundraising page.

YES! Yes, yes, yes: And so, the movie's site is Movement + Location, and the fundraising site is here. Click them! The trailer (freaky!) is above, and here's a synopsis of the plot:

Movement + Location is a casual science fiction drama set in modern day Brooklyn.

Kim Getty is an immigrant from 400 years in the future, sent back in time to live out an easier life. It’s a one-way trip of difficult isolation, but in the three years since she landed, Kim has built a life that feels almost satisfying. She has a full time job, shares an apartment with a roommate, and is falling in love.

But when she stumbles on a teenage girl who is also from the future, Kim’s remade sense of self is tested. After the girl leads Kim to her long-lost husband, now 20 years older than her and maladjusted to this time, Kim’s carefully designed identity begins to unravel.

Kim finds herself having to choose between two entirely different lives. But once her secrets are exposed, she realizes that the real decision is what she’s willing to do to survive.

("a life that feels almost satisfying"!)

Wow, I'm really intrigued! I will check back with the fundraising site after the holidays because I'm stretched a little thin right now. Good luck, Serena!

@fondue with cheddar I'm in the same (financial) place as you--but this is exactly the kind of movie my husband would love.

Also this puts a lot of pressure on tonight's Boston Pinup. How can we top this? I usually just end up telling stories about my cats.

@fondue with cheddar Thank you!!!

@SarahP See you at the Boston PinUp! Where we will transform McGreevey's into a giant collaborative performance art piece! That will be pithily written up in the NYtimes Style Section!

@travelmugs Or....maybe just make the bar a little more fabulous and less bro-filled?? I think that would be enough.

The best time to travel is in the holidays, right? Not if you want to make big savings on your traveling costs it's not. If you travel in off peak (or low season) periods, or even in the shoulder season, you'll find traveling costs a lot less. flightaccommodationpackages

Not seeing it for server managment. If someone couldn't do it via ssh, are you sure you would want them makeing changes on the server? He did say the client required it and you haven't been in the onlinedatastoragesite

Totally agree with all points, Eric. As a small business, 5 people strong, we just do not have the marketing dollars to compete with these larger players. We looked into RSA, but at $16000 for space alone, not including outfittings pciserialport

The annotated bibliography is one of the most detailed and difficult assignments there is, and that’s simply because it takes an extensive amount of time and effort and it also doesn’t seem to be particularly important. annotated bib

This story made me smile so much that I immediately took the two small, marble turtles on my work desk and tried to arrange them so they look two-headed. It ended up just looking like one was humping the other. So, no personal Thelma & Louise for me. best backlinks
